If you were one of the many amazing fiber artists who joined us at Interweave Yarn Fest a few weeks ago, you may have had the chance to experience our first-ever fashion show right as it was happening. We knew the fashion show would be fun and inspirational, but in reality, it exceeded all of our expectations!
Watching all of our contestants strut down the runway with their handmade fiber art left us inspired and full of smiles. Oh, and the food was great, too!
For all of our friends who could not make it to the fashion show, here is a breakdown of the event!
Total number of contestants: 63
It was incredible to see such a wide range of fiber art at the fashion show! You’ve had a look at the numbers, so let’s move on to the photos!

We want to take a moment to congratulate each and every one of our contestants who took the time to show off their beautiful handcrafted fiber art at the Interweave Yarn Fest fashion show. You should all feel proud of your creations and all you have accomplished! And we couldn’t have asked for a better, more supportive audience. Thank you to everyone who made the fashion show such a fun and inspiring success–even if you were cheering us on from home! We walked away with many memories that we will hold near and dear for years to come.
